With the way that banks and the global stock markets have been behaving, many people fear that what will eventually take us down is an economic collapse. Governments are living WAY above their means and countries are printing money irresponsibly. It seems almost inevitable.
In the case of such an event, the world as we know it will change drastically for all but the most wealthy and politically connected. Their lives will change, too, but perhaps not as much as the average Joe’s will. Money will most likely lose value and other, more functional skills and wares will come into play.
Do you have the skills you need to survive an economic collapse?
Many people believe that governments will collapse along with the economy but, according to history (the Great Depression for example), that isn’t necessarily the case. As a matter of fact, the government may swoop down and be even more oppressive.
Havoc will ensue regardless of politics, so it’s best to be prepared to live a life that isn’t based upon the value of a dollar.
